Eskdale Green offers some local amenities including a primary school, a nursery and a well stocked village shop, with more comprehensive amenities available at nearby Gosforth, and is a popular stop along the La'al Ratty, a miniature steam railway that runs all year round from Ravenglass to Eskdale on the Cumbrian coast.
